how to intervene in case of water leaks

In case of accidental punctures of the pipes or localized leaks it is possible to intervene in three different ways, but after having closed the general faucet of the system to interrupt the leak:

  • With the adhesive tape for leaks, wrap the pipe in the section that presents the leak by bleeding 2/3 cm per side. Apply a couple of wraps crossing in opposite directions

  • With the stucco, mix the two parts of the special putty until it becomes homogeneous, cover the tube and let it dry for at least 24 hours

  • With the sleeve, where possible, ie on straight pipe sections, apply the sleeve and close it, the rubber will seal the leak.
